Tinubu vs Atiku, Obi: Presidential tribunal warned not to deliver judgement that will set Nigeria ablaze

Meanwhile, a Civil Society Organisation (CSO) has warned the presidential tribunal not to give any verdict that will set the country ablaze.

The presidential tribunal is urged to ensure that truth and justice prevail in its verdict regarding petitions challenging President Tinubu’s victory.

The CSO said all eyes are on the Judiciary in Nigeria, and any verdict that fails to satisfy the requirements of justice may set the nation ablaze.
